In the past we've seen fireworks on New Year's Eve at Grant Park, but we always stuck to the area around Buckingham Fountain. This year, since we'd have to make our way through the area blocked off for the Taste of Chicago, we decided to go to the lakefront. Found a great spot right off the water, but since we hadn't camped out for hours beforehand, the good spots were taken already, and it was quite crowded. But once the fireworks started, we had a good view, and all was fine (even though the fireworks show itself was a little underwhelming this year...thanks economy. :P ).
